Film synopsis:

“…They told you that if you want to be a painter you shouldn’t have children. And you say this to me, so how am I supposed to feel?” My mother was born in Moscow to the family of a physics professor, but chose to be a painter. I – I didn’t choose, and I grew up in Jerusalem, in a home that is also a studio. Can you be an artist and also raise a family? When I was a child, my dream was to work in a supermarket, where everything is all there, everything in order, so pleasantly in order. I wanted my mother to work in an office and for us to have no worries. Two years ago I found myself in a place near hers, with a camera in hand. I try, among the paintings, to find my mother. Looking for mushrooms in the forest, old friends, poetry and familiar language take me back home.
